Ever think about a lighter payload ?
Sea ducks are bigger sucks and take more to bring down I want extended chokes so o can easly change them when ducks get smart and stop decoying
Huh? Do sea ducks ever get smart?
My gosh, if you want a bird for mounting and he’s 15-20 yards, simply wait til he’s a little farther! You can’t choose a choke that does it all. If you’re worried about destroying a mountable bird but want a chance at all other possible presentations, shoot an over/under with cylinder choke in one barrel and light full in the other. You’re way over thinking this.
I have no experience with blind side ammunition or Carlson's Blind Side chokes. Can't say that I'd spend money on either. My thoughts on sea duck hunting is use large shot (BB) and tightish chokes (Mod/IM/FULL). Shots can be quite long and Eiders are big, tough birds. Extended chokes make changing tubes easier and faster. I use Carlson's. Anything that makes things a bit easier when it's cold and sitting in a boat is a good thing.
Next they will be marketing crushed glass shot.
I've shot lot's of scoters (Black's, Whitewings and Surf's) with 1500 fps #3's (1 3/8 oz. 10 ga. home loads). Maybe #1's as back up. Shoot them in the face with smaller shot and they are feet up. Break a wing with one BB pellet and you will be chasing cripples (and you thought blue bills can swim a long way under water).
Bittler, you obviously want to buy some extended aftermarket chokes. So, get 'em. Your choice. Doesn't matter. Do it. Be happy.
A comparison of some popular chokes. I’m extremely partial to my mueller decoy but that’s me.
Seems like everybody's jumping in here so I'll drop my two cents as well.
I use Carlson aftermarket extended choke tubes and I've always found them to be very helpful at picking out a choke tube for me that is for what I wanted. I have several of them, recommended several of them to other people and love them in 20-gauge and 12-gauge guns that I have.
Carlson's may not be the most expensive but they flat work!
